Do you have an area of your garden that is shaded part of the day? There are many vegetables that grow in shade. Some even thrive when sheltered from the intense rays from the summer sun. Trees & buildings in & around your yard can make it difficult to choose a garden location. The shadows cast by objects change throughout the day & with the season as the sun shifts. There are many edible plants that can thrive in partial shade, dappled shade, or in as little as 3-6 hours of sunlight a day.
